Hilary Swank reveals first full photo of her twins and explains their unique names

Hilary Swank is giving fans their first full look at her twins in a new photograph.

Swank shared the picture of Aya and Ohm in a press release on Feb. 16, announcing her new role as chief innovation officer of the baby care brand HealthyBaby.

The photo shows the actor holding her son and daughter, whom she welcomed to the world in April 2023 with her husband Philip Schneider.

Swank revealed the babies’ names for the first time in a sweet Valentine’s Day 2024 post. She shared a photo of her twins in colorful bathing suits and matching wide-brim hats, sitting on a sandy beach.

Their names, Aya and Ohm, are spelled out behind them in what appear to be green rocks.

“I have a busy week of talk shows ahead where I’ll be sharing about my new film and a fun partnership, but I figured what better day to share the names of my two little loves with you all first,” Swank wrote. “Thanks for being here!!”

Surprise! Hilary Swank Is Pregnant, Expecting Twins with Husband Philip Schneider: ‘A Total Miracle’

Hilary Swank is expanding her family — by two!

The Oscar-winning actress, 48, announced Wednesday on Good Morning America that she and husband Philip Schneider are expecting twins.

“This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time and my next thing is I’m gonna be a mom,” said Swank. “And not just of one, but of two. I can’t believe it.”

The Alaska Daily star went on to rave about her exciting baby news, “It’s so nice to be able to talk about it and share it.”

Swank appeared on Live with Kelly and Ryan shortly after her GMA interview, saying of her pregnancy, “I’m feeling great right now, even with the time — you know, I’m on Pacific time, so I’m a little cross-eyed with that. But I’m feeling good right now.”

She added that her Alaska Daily crew didn’t know she was pregnant until her Wednesday announcement, as she is now into her second trimester.

“But my clothes started not to fit so I had to, the other day … cut [my jeans] open. And then I put a jacket on that wasn’t in continuity,” the actress recalled. “And [they] came and said, ‘That’s not in continuity.’ I said, ‘Oh, I think it works.’ ‘It doesn’t.’ ‘No, it does. I’m going to make it work.’ She’s like, ‘If you’re an executive producer, you can do it, but this is weird.’ ”

Swank went on to reveal that twins run in both her family and Schneider’s, and that she is “so excited” for the next phase.

“It’s such a blessing. It’s a total miracle. It’s unbelievable,” she raved.

Swank and Schneider, a social venture entrepreneur, tied the knot in August 2018, almost two years after the two were first spotted together in November 2016.

“It was timeless. There is just no other way to describe it,” Swank previously told Vogue of their wedding. “I was overwhelmed with such gratitude and thanks to be marrying the man of my dreams and to see all the people we love together in the middle of such a profound setting. It was truly a dream come true.”

The Million Dollar Baby actress also gave insight into her relationship with Schneider and the romantic way he proposed in Colorado.

“We stumbled upon a beautiful sanctuary deep in the mountains,” Swank said. “It had a stunning waterfall that cascades down to rustic cabins built in the 1800s surrounded by beautiful pines and big skies. One evening, Philip dropped to his knee in front of the waterfall and proposed—he sweetly made sure my dogs were nearby so they could bear witness!”

Hilary Swank Searches for Answers in ABC’s ‘Alaska Daily’ First Look

Hilary Swank is looking for answers. The Oscar winner stars in ABC’s upcoming fall drama, Alaska Daily, where she plays investigative journalist Eileen Fitzgerald, and only ET exclusively premieres the first official teaser and key art.

From creator Tom McCarthy, Alaska Daily follows Eileen, described as “a fiercely talented and award-winning investigative journalist who leaves her high-profile New York life behind after a fall from grace” to join a daily newspaper in Anchorage, Alaska, as she goes on a journey to find both personal and professional redemption.

In ET’s exclusive first look at the teaser, Eileen finds herself embroiled in a years-old cold case involving the death of a missing woman who was abducted when she was just a teenager. As Eileen gets deeper and deeper into the underbelly of the investigation, she learns that there’s more to the case and perhaps unsavory reasons why the police and the courts aren’t interested in seeking justice.

“Good journalism is what somebody doesn’t want you to know.” Well, she’s definitely on the road to finding that out.

Alaska Daily also stars Jeff Perry as Stanley Kornik, Matt Malloy as Bob Young, Meredith Holzman as Claire Muncy, Grace Dove as Rosalind “Roz” Friendly, Pablo Castelblanco as Gabriel Tovar, Ami Park as Yuna Park and Craig Frank as Austin Teague.

Alaska Daily premieres Thursday, Oct. 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
